Waterbuck Pair.

By rontear  
Visited a waterhole at the Saadani Reserve in Tanzania. The hide/blind was just a tree that you sat at the base of on stones. Sitting quietly the wildlife would wander in and take a drink then melt back into the bush. The camp manager just told us if the Lioness turned up sit very still !
